chapter  16
Arts reviewing
Pages 19

Some editors have no particular policy about arts reviewing and permit each review to go through on its merits. Where the review is signed or initialled the public can accustom itself to that particular reviewer’s standards, but when there is no overall standard between one review and another and there are constant changes of staff it can confuse someone trying for instance to follow local drama seriously. If your paper has no policy on this subject, this chapter may help you make up your mind about what sort of approach you are going to take.
